Sean Hannity gives $5,000 to Michele BachmannSean Hannity and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

Fox News host Sean Hannity gave $5,000 to the political action committee of conservative hero Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., in August, and his wife, Jill, gave another $5,000, Federal Election Commission records show.

The donations were given on Aug. 31 to MICHELEPAC (that’s an acronym for Many Individual Conservatives Helping Elect Leaders Everywhere).

Besides being a conservative radio and TV host, Hannity’s ties to the Republican Party are well known. Earlier this year he was the keynote speaker at the annual fundraising dinner of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

We’ve reached out to Fox for comment on this, and we’ll update this post if we hear back.



Here is Hannity in July interviewing Bachmann, whom he introduces as the “second most loved Republican woman” (after Sarah Palin):
